Men's skin is different from women's skin, so it has different needs. Men are less likely to have wrinkles due to their excessive oil production. However, with more oil comes acne and other issues. That’s why it is important to have a skincare routine that you follow to ensure that your skin is well cared for and will look amazing for years to come.
Men need a moisturizer that is specially made for their skin type, which means that this moisturizer will be more oily or greasy. You will need a sunscreen that blocks the UVB and UVA rays, which are responsible for aging the skin. This will protect your skin and prevent skin cancer. It should be at least an SPF of 30 or higher with broad protection.
A step-by-step routine is essential for men to take care of their skin. Men's skin is different than women's skin. Thus it needs different attention.
Morning Routines for Men.
Wash with soap and water in the morning and apply an oil-free moisturizer or sunscreen if you are going outside in the sun. You should always use some sort of moisturizer that includes sunscreen to keep your kind protected. This helps prevent wrinkles and other issues down the road. Always use products that are made for your skin type. You can apply Vitamin C serum before the moisturizer for better wrinkle control. Vitamin C serum is safe to use morning and night.
Basic Nighttime Routine
After washing your face clean at night, patting it dry with a towel, apply an oil-free moisturizer. Just as in the morning, should you want to add another layer, Vitamin C is a good choice that can go under your moisturizer.
Other Skincare Routines
While the above are great general care, there are some steps that were left out. If you have a beard, you will need to make time to care for it as well. This could be morning or night, really. However, to have the best-looking beard, doing beard care in the morning is best. This will allow you to clean up the lines around your beard and give your beard some grooming for the day. You can also wash your beard using beard wash in the shower and apply beard oil when out. However, should you clean your beard and apply oil at night, that oil can sit all night and soak in. Be sure that you apply away from your face, as beard oil shouldn’t be on your face, as with any other oil to prevent breakouts.
There are also facial masks that can be used from time to time. These masks are made for various skin types. Use a mask that fits your skin type and follow the directions on the mask. Should you have a large outbreak of acne or blackheads, a mask for acne would be wise, and follow that up with a nice moisturizer for oily skin.
